WIERD Presents the POP1280 Record Release Party Tonite!

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

The release date for the long-awaited debut album from VAURA is now set for Feb. 28th! You can download two trax from the record "Vanth" and "Obsidian Damascene Sun" below, and a trailer for the kaleidoscopic eclipse of blackened psychedelic energy that is the gatefold 2xLP and CD are available courtesy of Romanian video artist Costin Chioreanu. Nearly a year in the making, this wildly epic 56 minute journey was recorded and mixed by the great Colin Marston of Krallice at Menegroth:The Thousand Caves in Woodhaven, NY and effortlessly traverses all heretofore established boundaries between coldwave, black metal, industrial/noise, and darkly progressive post-rock. The 2xLP is available in an edition of 500 copies with 200 on bloody transluscent pink and opaque blue burst vinyl housed in a classic Stoughton 2 pocket gatefold jacket. The band has a series of live dates on the way beginning with supporting Junius @ The Knitting Factory on Feb. 12th, the official Selenelion Record Release Party @ WIERD on March 14th, and an ultra-heavy bill with Deafheaven and French Blackwave greats Alcest @ Public Assembly on March 31st.:

Selenelion is available for Pre-Order now!:

After a series of triumphantly bleak and filthy-fresh EPs and singles the first full-length by the gutter-trolling masters of heat-seeking skuzzrock has been a long time coming, and I assure you its covered in enough scabby hooks and methtastic tweakarama intensity sure to make this evening a crazy one, so get there early if you wanna catch a naughty peep through the sticky shades as the shady ladysniffin pleasurefest unfolds! Go ahead and stream the new muddy mess of a slab in ITs entirety below, and get into a seriously bad fukin mood, we all know you certainly deserve IT - thats right: remember just like Mommie always told you ITs all your fault. Everything. Now go to your room...or yeah whatever your cage, or cubicle, wherever you keep that sad little fleshly container of yours.
